This place can change your life. My husband went off blood pressure medicine! You get appoints with a doctor - I use Dr Danine Fruge. She is very important to the experience. I don't think the experience would be the same without her. You really get an education! Love this place.

My husband and I have visited Doral every February for the past 12 years. This spa has never been anything other than wonderful. Today I received a 90 minute facial from Maritza, probably one of the best facials I have ever had! I highly recommend this spa and Maritza!

This was my second visit to Pritikin and it was as wonderful as the first. I noticed quite a number of other second-timers as well as people who had been coming for years (for a “reboot”). There's a reason for this. The place is great. The dietary regime and underlying philosophy are sound. Under the medical plan, you have blood...

I truly wanted to love this place. I came down to check it out for a week and, if I liked it, book the entire months of January and February. The idea of combining Florida weather and healthy diet and exercise seemed compelling. Unfortunately, I really didn't like the place. The staff and management make it a failure but I'll...

Pritikin was a visionary whose concept of a healthy diet and exercise really works. What is amazing about his story is that he was not a doctor and he went against the medical establishment at the time. Great story, and certainly worth pursuing his concept, as you will inevitably live a healthier and possibly a longer life. We visited several...
